The opposite of bigger, more complex and more violent

E. F. Schumacher

"Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius -- and a lot of courage -- to move in the opposite direction."

This quote struck me because of all the press that video games have been getting recently. Specifically the car-jacking games that are so popular these days. What ever happened to Tetris and Breakout, both games that took creativity, strategy and quick thinking. The downside is that when done poorly these less complex, less violent games truly suck.
